Doing Business with ABB
Building relationships with best-in-class suppliers is an essential aspect of ABB’s global Supply Chain Management strategy.
As part of ABB’s values, and in alignment with the Supplier Code of Conduct, we seek to work with companies who contribute to a sustainable development and are ethically, socially, environmentally and economically responsible.
Supply Base Management is a key focus area within the ABB Supply Chain Management Strategy. As part of this focus, ABB has partnered with Achilles in designing a new global system to identify, collect, validate, store and maintain critical information regarding potential and existing suppliers.
